Naomi presents at the Gordon Research Conference on Chronobiology

July 16, 2017

Naomi will be presenting her latest work at the GRC Chronobiology Conference in Stowe, Vermont. She will be presenting a poster titled "Cognitive dysfunction in circadian disruption and aging", where she shows new data using in vivo biosensors demonstrating that the prefrontal cortex shows a very clear rhythm of extracellular lactate that is significantly blunted by disruption of circadian timing. Since lactate is a major fuel source for neurons, we think this may mean that brain energy utilization is compromised when the circadian clock is disrupted. Naomi also won a Carl Storm Under Represented Minority travel award for the meeting. Congratulations Naomi!
